To reduce our impact, we are removing ALL plastic shopping bags from our CEQ stores.
Our CEQ Commitment to Sustainability
In April, our teams will start transitioning from our current re-usable plastic shopping bags to new re-usable, non-plastic alternatives.
This means that even the heavyweight plastic shopping bags that we consider ‘re-usable’ now, will no longer be available.
Expanding the Single-Use Plastic Ban in 2023
Community, industry and business consultation has shown strong support to expand the ban of single-use plastics. As a result, the Queensland Government has expanded the ban to include; heavyweight plastic shopping bags along with cotton buds with plastic stems, expanded polystyrene loose packaging, plastic microbeads in rinseable personal care and cleaning products and mass release of lighter than air balloons from 1 September 2023.
CEQ is Taking a Proactive Approach on Single-Use Plastic Bags by Activating this Change in April 2023
As a part of our environmental social governance our team are assessing new ways to reduce CEQ’s carbon footprint and also increase our stores and community sustainability.
